The Story of the Mayflower II

This new exhibition will tell the true story of the Englishmen who gave the Mayflower II to America.

In 2020, this tiny wooden sailing ship will be the focus for millions of people on both sides of the Atlantic as we mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the original ship on the shores of America.

The star attraction for these celebrations will be the replica built by Warwick Charlton and, with the assistance of his family, the Gainsborough Heritage Centre is telling that story in this new exhibition that opens at the end of January and runs until 5 May.

Please note, the Heritage Centre is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm and Sundays from 11am to 4pm. If you would like to arrange a group visit to see this new exhibition, please contact the Heritage Centre on 01427 610526.
